I was born in Ljungskile on the west coast of Sweden, where I still live with my husband, dogs and horses. My childhood was filled with soccer, skiing, boating vacations and big family gatherings at grandma’s, but also with books and stories. I’ve worked as a welder, an economist, a high school counselor, a substitute teacher, a student assistant, and raised horses, but the dream of writing a book was always there. In 2012 I decided to realize my dream and in 2017 my debut Hennes ögon blå (And Her Eyes Were Blue) was published in Sweden and later in France, Poland and Denmark.

In 2023 some of my books were published in English, and in 2024 and 2025 hopefully all of them will be translated!
